. when you're having the same conversation over and over again with john boehner and ted cruz, and the answer is no. there's only so much you can do. ironically, some of the ideas, investing in infrastructure used to be supported by republicans, but barack obama says it be with and we can't do that without an offset. part of the problem is, so much of this is about the politics of obstruction and the idea it would give obama a win. rather than just a pure messaging stand point, i don't understand why the republicans don't say let's all get credit. you can say we created jobs. >> what's frustrating, josh, is it does seem even an unemployment extension of three months becomes an exercise in futility. to the points, no one is tackling the longer term problem you have to get the economy to generate jobs. but at the same time, the economy is losing jobs, there are figures out showing that just one week of people losing these jobless benefits is going to cost $408 million, that's money they can't spend into the economy. ongoing damage is being done, and we're never getting to debate how to c

thing? that's an old story, republicans. house speaker john boehner couldn't agree more with mcconnell. he's been for a long time a vocal opponent of extending without offsets. they love offsets. how are you going to pay for it? boehner released a statement saying, without cuts and job incentives, the house, they're not going to be looking at this extension anytime soon. the house is going to remain focused on growing the economy and giving america's unemployed the independence that only comes from finding a good job. i'll tell you what. there's a guy that speaks out of both sides of his mouth. in fact, in their big memo that they had come out last friday, there was nothing in there about job creation. it looks like speak eer boehner has been attending the rand paul school of backward thinking in economics. it's hard to find a job if you don't have enough money to get to the next interview. president obama met with a group of unemployed americans today to tell the story from the white house. >> unemployment insurance has been a vital economic lifeline. for a lot of people, it

wae truth, ed, i think if the bill were called, if john boehner would actually call the bill, i think we might be able to extend those benefits. certainly in the senate we've got some bipartisan support, and i think in the house too. so really, if democracy were allowed to work and the majority were allowed to rule, i think we oh could actually do some good. but we've got john boehner seeming -- yet again to be in control of the tea party, and that faction. but, you know, we'll see. there's a hot of pressure being put on both houses now, to extend those benefits. >> well, you know, in john boehner's district, i was told by louise slaughter says there is a poll that says 63% of the people in boehner's district, they want to extend unemployment benefits to these americans who are now in a sense destitute and wondering what's going to happen to them. does the poll really matter? do the people matter here? i mean, the corporations have such a tremendous grab on the republican party. i mean, right now, from what i understand, from the democrats, is that you're hoping that public pressure b

congresses. we went back today and looked at john boehner's freshman year. that congress passed a whopping 610 bills into law. but boehner did remind us all in july that that is no way to judge his congress now. >> we should not be judged on how many new laws we create. we ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal. >> okay, then, mr. speaker. let's do that for a minute. even on that measure, it turns out this congress is a failure. even on its supposedly core pieces of conservative agenda items, many never got a vote. look, for example, at an attempt to repeal fuel economy standards. a failure. 101 house members cosigned a bill that would effectively terminate a huge chunk of the tax code. that was a failure. so even by the speaker's metric, the first year this congress was a failure. we are going to find out soon, as soon as tuesday, whether that will all change. joining us now to unpack it is robert costa, a cnbc political analyst and back with us here at the table, steve kornacki. robert, we are hearing talk about boehner's interests in a small immigration deal. that would

air, house speaker john boehner put out a statement in an email to reporter. the bottom line is he told the white house before christmas he would pass the extension if it were paid for. the senate bill is not paid for, in other words it would cost the federal treasury about $6.5 billion. there is no offsetting, either cost cuts or revenue raisers in that to offset that $6.5 billion. john boehner saying now he is not going to take it up in the house unless that happens. that is not a very high hurdle, but another way to look at this is there an opening now in the house of representatives to do this. after all it was a republican senator teaming with jack reid from rhode island, and the senator from nevada, a high unemployment state, so the president as you reported, dell, will be surrounded by folks who would benefit from this unemployment extension. unemployment administered by the states. if you file for unemployment, you are eligible for about 26 weeks. what the federal government has done in the past several years, extended those for the long-term unemployment. now the long-term

congressional district today, constituency of john boehner. so john boehner, the archetype of anti-big government, he benefited hugely from the biggest government of america has ever known. the final things i want to say, this is where i want to bring my telephone and hope it will work. cross my fingers. it relates to radio. you will all know that radio was invented essentially by marconi in 1902, and the image i think we can all remember from school this is the marconi sitting on that signal hill in newfoundland, a stormy night with the aerial held on a tight forever feet above his head listening out through the housing jails for the possibility of the letter asked in morse been transmitted by his colleagues 2000 miles away. about 2 a.m. this magical morning when suddenly he heard and felt regard with great clarity the broadcast although it across the atlantic ocean. so radio and transoceanic radio was suddenly a reality. that was fine, but so far as knitting the country together, conversation in morse code was not of the best. there's no sort of great intimacy and having to send mess

republican leader john boehner. speaker john boehner and others thought that it was not going to be a winning strategy. you have a divided government right now, even if it could pass out of the congress which seems unlikely, the law would be defunded or delayed. president obama would probably defunded or delayed, never signed that kind of a bill, -- president obama would never sign that kind of a bill, right? it was a strategy without a complete end that would accomplish the goal. >> you mentioned house and republicans couldn't agree on spending. the shutdown happens, they tried continuous ways to change the law through legislation. but republican leaders also start introducing many appropriations bills. funding veterans programs and the national parks. why did they try to go that route? >> as you can imagine, shutting down the federal government as much as people, love or hate the government, shutting down national parks and routine government services was not popular. this became a tension across the country. workers are getting tension -- workers are getting furloughed, sent home.

they make progress? john boehner said it's bad for small business, republicans don't want to do it. $7.25, if you do the math, it's not a living wage. is there movement there between the democrats and republicans? >> most democrats do not say this. the house and senate, they think it's useful. we talked to chuck schumer about this and he's reluctant to talk about it in the abstract. this is a concrete place that most americans say it should be higher. they are happy to force republicans to vote on it as many times as they can. >> think about those getting a job for the first time, teenagers. minimum wage should not be raised too much for that group. people that are heads of households, there's an argument to be made that we should raise it by $3 or $4. congress could find a group of republicans. chuck todd was on the show a week and a half ago saying the majority of tea partiers agree on this. if democrats don't demagogue the issue, but bring it together. >> look at it on a larger landscape. transitional jobs that might go to teenagers are going to people that haven't been able to

not it continues into 2014. you saw at the end of 2013 john boehner himself get fed up with the tea party and also moderate republicans say that they needed to speak up more, that they needed to band together. they of course were against the actions around the government shutdown that were led by the far right of the party. so this is an interesting thing. and i think if you look at what democrats need to do come 2014 to win back the house, you know, slim, slim, slim chance that they can, i think it's something like 1%, but when seats like this open up it certainly gives democrats more of a chance to win back in-some seats in the house. >> well, sam stein, gerlach's seat looks interesting. mitt romney won that district with only 51% of the vote. that seems like it could be something the democrats could get. >> yeah. now, gerlach won his re-election by 57% of the vote. so it was trending away from democrats because of redistricting. however, one thing that is in the democrats' favor is the governor of pennsylvania, tom coburn, is up for re-election. widely unpopulated guy. there will

, today house speaker john boehner released a statement saying that one month ago he personally told the white house that another extension of temporary emergency unemployment benefits should not only be paid for but the congress should also do something to try to bring people back to work and he says that to date so far the president, the white house, have not come up with an idea on how to do that and if he were to do that, meaning the president, then john boehner would be open to discussing it. so from republicans point of view, they want to see a way to pay for this and a larger discussion of trying to get some job creating ideas out there. democrats say this is an emergency and these benefits should not be cut short. one of the things we're waiting to learn this afternoon, richard, is will majority leader harry reid in the senate, he's just speaking now to reporters, will he be open to the idea of allowing some changes to the way this temporary bill is structured right now. could there be a way to pay for it that might bring along additional republican support necessary to get i

and to negotiate. they just kept saying no, no, no, no. >> john boehner had the unfortunate honor of being the nominal leader of house republicans when the united states government was brought to its knees, but behind the scenes there was another force at work, a band of house tea party republicans who effectively executed a hostile takeover of the congress with their defund obama care or else strategy. there are about 80 of them, and we profiled some of them in our series "these are the people who are running the country." tonight, we reintroduce you to one of our favorites. meet congressman and current candidate for u.s. senate, paul brown of georgia. congressman paul brown won a special election in 2007. he won re-election in 2008 and 2010 and again last november. now he wants to be georgia's next senator. his credentials? well, he's a doctor, he was a lobbyist for the safari club international, a group that advocates for hunters, and he brags about being the first member of congress to call the president a socialist. congressman broun, who sits on the house science, space and tec
